Recipe: Insalata Caprese alla Cathrin {mozzarella, fresh peaches and basil}

Insalata Caprese Salad with Peaches
Recipe: Insalata Caprese Salad with peaches { mozzarella, fresh peaches and basil }
The credit for this easy & quick summer appetizer goes to my sister Cathrin in Hamburg :)
A fresh summer twist on the classic Insalata Caprese, she replaces the tomatoes with ripe yellow peaches - although nectarines, strawberries or even figs might make for other tempting combinations.

It's become one of my favorite summer appetizers, quick to prep - and just getting better when prepped ahead of time for an extra mingling of sweet and savory flavors.  

the ingredients.
5-6 fresh mozzarelle {ovoline size}
6 yellow yellow peaches {or nectarines}
half a bunch of fresh basil
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt & freshly ground pepper

Cut the mozzarella balls into small chunks, quarter and half the peaches and arrange all on a large serving platter. Season generously with salt and freshly ground pepper, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the chopped basil leaves .... Buon appetito!
